This book focuses on the role of three factors in international business: geopolitics, corporate espionage, and diplomacy. The book is well organized. A table of contents is followed by a detailed table of contents. Chapters open with abstracts (identical to the chapter descriptions in the detailed table of contents) and end with references. There are black-and-white figures scattered throughout. The volume concludes with brief biographies of the contributors, a list of compiled references, and an index.
Under the editorship of Bryan Christiansen, from PryMarke, LLC, USA, and Fatmanur Kasarci, from the PryMarke Business Academy in Turkey, this volume covers a wide range of topics in 17 chapters. Topics include the influence of Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe's economic policies on international business, the effects on international business of economic nationalism and patriotism, cybercrime (with a heavy emphasis on the United States, China, and Russia), the development of Korean pop music and the need for copyright regulations, the geopolitics of immigrant labor, and much more. The material is timely, particularly in light of the marked rise in nationalism in the twenty-first century and the simultaneous increase in cybercrime. This book is recommended to college libraries looking for a book on the effects of geopolitics, corporate espionage, and diplomacy on international business. College libraries can also buy electronic book chapters separately if the cost of the whole volume is prohibitive.
